Installing Oracle Java on Ubuntu, very easy

I don't personally program in Java, but since I use Cassandra, Java is a requirement on my system.

The OpenJdk works, but it is presented as having problems when running Cassandra. Having run in a problem (see on Stack Overflow,) I thought I would finally give a chance to Oracle and install their version to see whether that was the culprit.

I was really thinking that the OpenJdk was working fine because I have two other systems working just fine, but those two systems have Ubuntu 12.10 opposed to version 12.04 in my case.

Anyway, it was very easy to install Java and I did not have to make any changes to the existing installation (And thus the different things running Java could continue as is.)

The commands look like this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

That's it! It will automatically change the alternatives to that new version of Java. Once installed you can test with java -version to see that it tells you java version "1.7.0_11" (or whatever version you're installing.)

    Secure Socket Layer, this is a protocol used to transmit secure data between two computers. Both computers will first agree on an encryption secret code, then all the data sent back and forth will be encoded using that code. In order to make it secure, you generate two set of numbers (called keys) one that is public and one that is private. The public key sole purpose is to encrypt the data. The private key sole purpose is to decrypt the data.
